hubby and I were ...uh ahem ... enjoying some coconut oil in the bedroom,... I maybe ingested 1/2 a tablespoon of straight high quality oil. 5 mins later my stomach was rumbling like I just drank a cup of milk (latose intolerant). Then I realized... (more)
I felt fine this morning. Great even. I cooked up some grass-fed liver from my local farmer and it sat like a rock in my stomach. A half hour later, I was sweating and running to the bathroom. My stomach is in knots and I feel miserable. What... (more)
See a doctor as soon as possible.
Please bear with me... I am 56 and female. For MANY years I had problems with sinuses, ears, headaches and was always "treated" with steroids, anti biotics and painkillers which only masked the symptoms for a bit. I also had low energy and was... (more)
I'm trying to eat a mostly high fat and high protein diet, but ever since I started it I have no appetite. I'm often nauseous and can only eat once a day. I feel a ton of pressure in my gut, to the point where I have to lay on my stomach to... (more)
It's good you are seeing a doctor. I agree with Nance. Another thing you have to do is STOP being on a restrictive diet. You have to eat and if it's non-paleo food that's better than starving. Ice cream, milk shakes, anything. Have you ever... (more)
I recently started counting macros (a few days ago actually) and have been hitting them since. I eat whole foods, non of the Pop Tart IIFYM stuff. I am not fully Paleo as I consume SPROUTED grains and legumes. I don't eat gluten, fake sugars,... (more)
I've been on paleo for a bit over a month now, and I'm already experiencing all of the awesome effects (weight loss, sustained energy, etc.). I don't have a problem so much as just a random question. Sometimes after eating, or after drinking... (more)
I am looking for information on the exact processes that occur when water is consumed on an empty stomach. Hopefully the information will help with a problem I have. Example questions: Is acid, gastrin, or anything else secreted? How... (more)
You stomach is not really empty, but is already full. When the water arrives it has to leave fairly quickly, starting within 5 minutes into the small intestine, and more or less all gone in half an hour.
I have just started week 5 of following a strict paleo diet and I am still having some stomach issues. Before I started eating paleo I was experiencing gurgling in my stomach constantly and I am still having those same issues after I eat. What's... (more)
Let me give a little history Back on s.a.d I had no blood sugar issues. But sugar made me moody. Naturally skinny and runs in the family. I swapped to paleo because of emotional eating with addictive foods ( surcose) causing me to gain weight as I... (more)
I unfortunately had to start taking antibiotics a few days ago for an infection in my toe. I held off as long as I could and tried to use some natural things to get rid of it but it just got worse. The antibiotics are sure doing a number on my... (more)
So I recommended paleo to a friend of mine after having great success on it myself for the last year. When I started paleo I had a LOT of digestive problems and paleo helped heal them a great deal. I recommended paleo to a friend who is fairly... (more)
Ok, I'm roughly two weeks into paleo and for the last four days have had horrible stomach pain and the last two days my stool is a dark green color. No diarrhea, though have used the restroom frequently. The first week i felt great, felt thinner... (more)
The sudden change in your diet may have upset your GI tract a bit. It sounds like you may be consuming a lot more fibre than your body was used to and/or a lot of FODMAPs ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/FODMAP ) which can cause digestive upset and... (more)
Hi everyone, Lately I've been scaling up my fat intake by adding coconut oil, coconut butter, coconut milk, and some ghee into the mix as before I don't think I was getting enough fat into my diet (I'm wrapping up a month on paleo). While I've... (more)
Has anyone seen this rebuttal to Poliquin about the need for HCl supplements for digestive functioning? It was originally posted in a yahoo group by an actual (gasp) gastroenterologist and made its way to T-nation. Anyone have any rebuttals to... (more)
hypochlorhydria, low stomach acid, is pretty poorly studied and more research focuses on infections rather than digestion however there are a lot of studies on PPIs, which cause hypochlorhydria purposefully and eventually do lead to B12... (more)
I have been doing Crossfit for the past five years and Paleo for the past 3 years on and off. I have been pretty strict about my diet for the past year, hardly eat any sugars, no bread, no dairy. I also crossfit 5-6 days a week. My body has... (more)
I am out of town visiting family. Unbeknown to us until we arrived, half of the family is sick with some kind of stomach bug causing vomiting and diarrhea. For those that have consulted a doctor, the doctors have recommended a diet of items such... (more)
When I started to eat more saturated fat, I also started taking Betaine HCL. The problem is that in those 3 weeks I felt 3 times stomach pressure which lasted 1 day. It is not pain, but it is some kind of pressure. I tried different combination... (more)
Take liquorice root powder with a little water a few times a day. About half a teaspoon. If you do have h. pylori, it will help kill it off and keep it from getting worse. But definitely get tested for it!
When I try to IF, I end up eating all the calories I would eat within one day anyway in the allotted amount of hours; so much that it feels like my stomach is stretching because I feel like I stuff myself so much. I can't seem to help it though!... (more)
img_20140129_095729.jpg Dear recently i m facing stomach problem and breathe shortness and meeting with doctor he said for blood test and currently i also have test report. today. morning i m feeling my hand finger tips sleepy sorry... (more)
I didn't have a single GI issue during the first 30 days of Paleo. To be honest, I didn't feel any drastic improvement like people claim here (and I didn't cheat). Towards the end, my stress levels from work were really bad + slight depression... (more)
Unlike some folks here, I didn't start paleo because of digestive problems. However, since beginning about a month ago, I am having discomfort in my belly after eating. I was vegan for 5 years prior, and vegetarian for 8 total, so the biggest... (more)
I get really bad aching pain in my stomach whenever I eat eggs, broccoli and almonds. MSG bothers me too but nothing like the pain I get with these foods. No one seems to know why. I was hoping someone out there might have some insight concerning... (more)
How long can you leave hard boiled eggs out un-refrigerated until they spoil?
Most legumes are not bad?
